SCALGO Announces New Software Packages and Flash Flood Mapping Product
SCALGO released version 1.1 of the software packages SCALGO Model, SCALGO Hydrology and SCALGO Simplify, which can be used to process massive terrain data sets (tens of billions of data elements) on a normal desktop computer.
One major new feature in version 1.1 is ArcGIS support; all SCALGO software modules can now be run from within ArcGIS, and can be combined with existing ArcGIS tools into complicated and scalable production pipelines using ArcGIS ModelBuilder.
SCALGO Model can be used to construct raster and TIN terrain models from massive terrain points (such as LiDAR), as well as to simplify massive raster terrain models in a fully-specified and user-controlled way. SCALGO Hydrology can be used to perform basic hydrological modeling on massive raster terrain models, including computing flow accumulation, watersheds, bluespots (maximal depressions) and flood maps from rising sea-levels. SCALGO Simplify adds the raster simplification functionality of SCALGO Model to the SCALGO Hydrology package.
SCALGO has also launched the SCALGO Flash Flood Mapping product, which estimates the risk of flooding during extreme rain events on a regional or even national scale. The mapping shows how much rain has to fall before any given cell of a detailed raster terrain is below water, and thus it also shows what part of the terrain is below water after a given amount of rain. The SCALGO Flash Flood Mapping product is being offered as a computation service.
